In the Dzhalisu valley there is a wide variety of queer rock formations, “castles”, “teeth”, “mushrooms” and other. Most of all, I like these natural sculptures, because they resemble mountain-climbers for me. Many of real climbers start from there to mount the Elbrus. But maybe they actually are those monks or nuns from Danos’ picture, who have left a warm Greek island for travel around the green Caucasus Mountains.

These are unusual formations, reminiscent of the formations in Cappadocia. I wonder what the composition of these rocks are, if indeed they've been carved by the elements. Are they perhaps tufa rock?
Warm regards, Sergiy,

These natural sculptures are quite remarkable! I can see why people have compared them to familiar objects. To me, they resemble the tall, conical hats that we made for the children, who were pretending to be princesses, at Christmas!
Good sharpness and fine detials.
The bare ground below the rocks makes a diagonal, which helps to divide the frame into thirds.
If I have one little criticism, it is the positioning of the tent. For me, it should have been deeper into the shot, or not there at all.
My warm regards,

Très intéressante cette photo et merveilleuses sculptures de la nature. Excellent éclairage et qualité d'image qui les mettent bien en valeur. J'aime un peu moins la tente en bas et j'ai préparé un WS mais ça reste quand même une belle photo.
Tous mes compliments,

Boa noite Sergiy
Strange and beautiful sculptures. The miracle of the nature. Superb picture and with very high quality.

It reminds me a little at the rock formations in Cappadocia.
These grey 'teeth' or 'mushrooms' contrast strong with the lush green hillside which in turn looks very colourful with the many flowers.
The inclusion of the big tent gives us a better idea of the scale, but it's not really a beautiful tent. Most likely this last isn't a concern for the climbers. As long as the tent provides them the necessary shelter and comfort.

Caprices of nature, are formations are really beautiful and original, wonderful POV to the diagonal of the mountainside and jagged rocks silhouetted against the beautiful sky.
Very bright day with which the green dotted with a few flowers, is ideal, the bright light makes us enjoy this beautiful place.

Difficult to sit down on these tops to admire the sight !!! Interesting photograph on this original geology. A beautiful photograph on this mountainous area and the tent of foreground brings a good depth to the image. Thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships and a very good day,

Good morning Sergiy,
Ohh yes my friend, i think that you have right,the nuns have left from Naxos island and visited the green Caucasus Mts..
Impressive these natural sculptures that dominating the scene.I like the brilliant light of the image,the vivid colours as the existence of the tent that the nuns are sleeping at nights...
Have a good day,Danos

again I am amazed how beautiful nature is there at Caucassus. Thank you for taking me with you to your journey through pictures.
siolaw (37640) 2011-01-07 22:26
These rocks have strange shapes for sure! and they stay together like a family!
Good framing with the tent in the corner. Colors and sharpness are fine!
mkamionka (27045) 2011-01-09 1:01
thank you for sharing this strange rock formations. The nature is so creative. I like your presentation: the tent makes a contrast with the nature and provides a scale marker.
Very nice capture,

В который раз наблюдаю, что видимо цветоперадача у твоего SONY другая, в результате и трава и небо выглядят необычно. Классно, но иначе, чем у других.
Или на Кавказе цвета отличаются. Вобщем, озадачил ты меня этим.
Интересные скульптуры создала природа,наверное этому есть объяснение.

Good morning Sergiy,
I had got behind in my TE critiques, so here I am again, catching up on enjoying my friends'photographs.
These again are very special formations that seem to be a characteristic of eastern Europe and Turkey for instance.
You captured them well . I like the analogy with Danos's Greek nuns ! I was fooled by that picture.
Good composition with the tent at the bottom and the little flowers on the slope. The yellow of the flowers recalls the yellow of the tent.
It must be a good place to camp, but is there any water nearby?
Thanks for sharing and have a good day.
